Plant Boingsettas to destroy grid items as well as knock back and chill zombies.

Penny

Boingsetta is an ice plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 8.5.1 update. When planted, she deals heavy damage (1000 damage per shot) to all obstacles such as octopuses and tombstones, she also bounces all zombies back (for about 1 tile) and chills them (for 5 seconds). After initial planting, she will only affect the obstacles and zombies in her lane, needing time (25 seconds) to recharge after each use. If there are no targets, Boingsetta will not attack.


Origins

Poinsettia.jpg

She is based on a poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima), the plant species of the diverse spurge family native to Central America and widely used in floral Christmas displays.

Her name is a portmanteau of "boing" which refers to her ability to knock back zombies, and "poinsettia", the plant she's based on.

Strategy

Boingsetta is incredibly powerful in a variety of scenarios and worlds. Just as you play her, she is capable of destroying all obstacles, which can be very useful in hazard-filled worlds like Dark Ages, Ancient Egypt or Frostbite Caves. After she has been planted, her knockback + chill attack can be very helpful at stalling massive zombie quantities, however this attack is only in her lane and not constant, so it is a good idea to bring other offensive plants.

Boingsetta is especially useful in Big Wave Beach, world of the infamous Octo Zombie. Thanks to her amazing capabilities for destroying obstacles, octopi launched by him can easily be nullified, surfboards placed on the lawn are destroyed, therefore making the world a lot easier. However, players have to strategize and use her carefully due to the 30 second recharge she has.

Similarly to Spring Bean, Boingsetta's knockback sends zombies into the water in Pirate Seas. Unlike Reinforce-mint, her knockback ability does not make the zombies airborne, so she cannot be used with Blover.
